Brazil's Global TV will shoot episodes of the primetime telenovela Três Irmàs on location in Bali.
The Portuguese language romantic comedy television series chose Bali's Uluwatu peninsula to act as a fictitious beach resort of Caramirin together with the island's capital of Denpasar.
The Bali story line will center around surfing, necessitating the casting of Brazilian surfing talent together with Brazilian heartthrobs Dudu Azevedo, Pablo Vilhena, Landmarks Palm, Marcello Novaes, Kayky Brito, and Rodrigo Hilbert.
The programs directors Deniis Carvalho and José Luis Villamarim spent four days scouting the location for the Indonesian segments. Vilamarin said: : "Indonesia is a fascinating country. When we arrived in Ulumwatu, one of the loveliest places in Bali for surfing, I was impressed by the scenery. The light is wonderful."
The Brazilian telenovela will premier in Brazil in September 2008.
